Just getting better and better
on 23 July 2004
As a self-confessed Simpsons addict, I have picked up all four box sets now, and even though my copy of Series 4 only dropped on the mat yesterday, and I'm only two episodes into it, I know already that this is the best of the sets so far.
Some of the most memorable episodes of the entire run make it onto this set, and within them some of the funniest moments - the Monorail song; Apu's nephew when he gets to run the Kwik-e-Mart; the moment when Ralph Wiggum's heart actually breaks; Smithers' thoughts on seamen; Dr Nick's heart surgery; and Mr Plow getting it on. You may not have seen some of these episodes for a while, but you'll be back into them straight away.
If you're not a Simpsons fan, and you've never understood what all the fuss is about - you will never get a better chance than here. Intermingled with the limitless humour are plotlines about teenage heartbreak, the possibility of a parent dying, being distant from your kids, the thought of never having any kids, and alcoholism. The best show never made for children.
